Clearing the Air: the Truth about Italian Olive Oil

With all the media attention given to the questionable practices of Italian olive oil producers, how do we separate the wheat from the chaff when buying it? Bring all your doubts and questions to this talk to learn how to interpret the visual and sensory signs of a great olive oil and ensure you are getting your money's worth. The event will include a tasting led by certified olive oil taster Orietta Gianjorio and a discussion with Italian food culture expert and cooking instructor Viola Buitoni on the best kitchen uses for different olive oils, according to their character and provenance.
